I know some scientists and trainers used hand signals to communicate with dolphins. The problem is: the dolphins have no hand to express themselves. With chimpanzees, we see how creative they are, not only in creating new words, but also in teaching their offspring without being told to do so (not sure if it was Jane Goodall who told that story in Through a Window).

So, what additional techniques could be used with cetaceans to really communicate with them?
